What the Lake Erie Connector project could mean for your hydro bill

from TVO

From July 6: The federal government approved the Lake Erie Connector project, a 1,000-megawatt transmission line to be buried under the lake, sending electricity 117 kilometres back and forth between Nanticoke, Ontario, and Erie County in Pennsylvania. The approval came just before the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers announced that the province had wasted 7.6 terawatt-hours of clean energy last year — a 58 per cent increase over the year before

Since Ontario wants to offload its excess capacity, according to Jatin Nathwani, executive director of the Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy, the connector will at first mostly carry electricity south. But that could change over the long life of the transmission line. more
